The #TotalHonestyTuesday Roundup, Vol. 12

Total-Honesty-Tuesday_V10Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.

And every Wednesday, we’re collecting stories shared on the hashtag here, so we can read them together and start our mid-week mornings with a little honesty.

ALL RIGHT, IG, y'all didn't ask and y'all shall RECEIVE!! I have lost 35 pounds in the past year-ish of being sober. I eat bad food as a release because being sober is as difficult as it is rewarding. I used to be an athlete and therefore could eat whatever I wanted, and that bad habit continued into my sedimentary lifestyle post-sports. Here is my stomach–it took every fiber of my being not to call it a gut—in all of its stretch-marked and sucked-in glory. I have a long way to go, but that shouldn't stop myself from celebrating losing the 35 lbs I gained from being depressed and miserable post-grad. Now just to get rid of that last 35 from being depressed and miserable in college (jk but not really)! I don't know a single woman, no matter her size, that loves every part of her body, and I'm far from an exception. But here's the thing, we can all improve on our health and fitness, but if we beat ourselves up every step of the way, then we won't improve on the inside either, and the weight will creep right back. I earned this stomach, flaws and all, and I'm gonna embrace it…and cover it back up after this picture. So peace out, bad body image, and helllllooooo…mediocre body image! ✌🏻️ Now if you don't mind, I'll end this post with this song from Jenna Maroney: 🎶My muffin top is all that, whole grain low fat, I know you want a piece of that, but I just wanna dance🎶 #totalhonestytuesday #nottuesday #fitfam #wwmafia #effyourbeautystandards #peaceoutbadbodyimage #30rock #weightloss #transformationtuesday #nottuesdayagain #bluemonday #sobriety #lolitabykatvond #spicebymac #peaceout #AA #Alcoholism #alcoholicsanonymous
